This one is rather simple but I wanted to add it for completeness sake.
Vik often made this as a side dish for other meals and rightfully so, it tastes great and is easy.
Tin FoilBaking SheetOvenCutting BoardKnife
- A head of Broccoli
- Olive Oil
- Preheat the oven to 450
- Cut the head of broccoli into pieces discarding the stem.
- Put the broccoli in a bowl then add olive oil, salt, and pepper and mix thoroughly.
- Transfer the broccoli to a baking tray covered in tin foil then put it in the oven. It does not have to be finished preheating.
- Check the broccoli regularly. It will finish baking in ~20 minutes.
Since you don't need to wait for the oven to preheat this is a great addition to any stove meals.
Vik would season the broccoli on the tray and stir it using tongs but I feel that doing it by hand gets a better season even though you need to wash your hands afterwards.
